OK, so it’s not a phase. Officially, Orange and more Orange.
A return visit to the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr (near Harrogate in Yorkshire) and so much to see! Small in comparison to RHS Wisley, but still packing in the excitement and seasonal interest.
Planted containers full of tulips, in vibrant and jewel-like combinations, populate the gardens-through-history area and are things of pure amazement.
A simple concrete pot, one of a matched pair, on a stark terrace, brimming with colour. Pure molten lava.
The dots of bright blue from the muscari are essential in accentuating the vibrancy of the orange and red. The tulip varieties are noted below.
